  1. It was narrated that Jaabir (RA) said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) forbade plastering over graves, sitting on them and erecting structures over them. Ash-Shafi said: I saw the Imams in Makkah ordering that what had been built (over graves) was to be knocked down. Note: Ash-Shafi was a scholar who lived in the second century after Hijrah, therefore the destruction of structures over graves is not a practice originated from "Wahabis" The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: May Allah curse the Jews and the Christians, for they have taken the graves of their Prophets as places of wor
  2. That's a false comparison. One is not praying to the Kaaba but merely in its direction as commanded by Allah and His messenger; if you reread what I said, I didn't criticise the praying in the direction of the grave, rather I criticised calling upon the one in the grave as well as making a shrine out of the graves as the Christians do. The Surah Maida argument is weak - it refers to performing righteous deeds, prayer and dua, not seeking the Tawassul of men. Secondly, the Prophet (SAW) is physically dead now, and there is no evidence that he can hear you and respond to your calls, even if
  3. The Hadith (and other variations of the Hadith which can be found online) clearly show that the festivals of Jahiliyyah have been replaced by the Eids of Al Adha and Al Fitr. Nowruz is a festival of Jahiliyyah. There is no way to justify these innovations without being intellectually disingenuous and wanting to follow one's own desires rather than the guidance of the Prophet (SAW). As I also said, Nowruz is immitation of the Kuffar (of pre-Islamic Persia): The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Whoever imitates a people is one of them' Grading
  4. I believe many have argued for Istagatha on this website before, which I lean towards being Shirk.
  5. Well I cannot say outright what he is doing, but I disagree with Shrines to start with (as the Prophet (SAW) forbade such places), and *some* people make dua to the individual which is Shirk, and *some* make Istigatha to the one in the grave which is also strongly argued to be Shirk; spme make dua for the individual in the grave, which I do not object to.
  6. In the 5th picture he is raising his hands like dua?
  7. What are these people doing beside the grave?
  8. Imam Shafi was the student of Imam Malik, and Imam Ahmad was most definitely not a student of Imam Jafar. ‘Abdullah bin Ahmad has related to us from Abu al-Harth Surayj bin Yunus from Abu Hafs Abbar from Hakam bin ‘Abd al-Malik from Harth bin Hasirah from Abi Sadiq from Rabi‘ah bin Najidh from ‘Ali (RA), who narrates: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) told me: "You are like Jesus. The Jews hated him so much that they slandered his mother, and the Christians because of their extreme devotion to him placed him in a position which was not his.” Then ‘Ali (RA) said: "Two persons [gr
  9. 1. What is your evidence that he is against the Ahlul Bayt? Rather he is not, he is against the Rafidah and Nusayri who are the enemies of the Ahlul Bayt by exaggerating their status in insulting ways, like the Christians did with Isa (AS). 2. The Ahlul Bayt (at least in terms of Imamah) are not a pillar - the pillars of belief are the five found clearly in the Quran: - Belief - Salah - Zakaat - Sawm - Hajj The Ahlul Bayt are to be respected and they are companions too from whom Sunnis (including Ibn Taymiyyah RH) can take the Sunnah from.
  10. I have given a clear hadith which clearly shows festivals a restrained by Deen, therefore you cannot argue this.
  11. With regards to Dunya, yes, but anything regarding Deen, no, it is not from Islam until proven, otherwise it becomes an innovation/Haram. As explained in my previous post, only Eid Al Fitr and Eid Al Adha are allowed to be celebrated with all other celebrations e.g. the alleged birthdays of the Prophet (SAW) and the Imams, Nowruz, Eid Al Ghadeer, being innovations or immitation of the Kuffar, as the Hadith of Rasulallah (SAW) clarified. I do not care if the masses are attached to their customs or emotively to the birthdays of these figures, for example, but the Prophet (SAW) is more authoritat
  12. This question is asked from a skewed understanding of 'innovation', I believe. Eating with spoons etc are not religious matters, therefore they are not innovations, as it is just a matter of Dunya making it easier to consume certain types of food. Festivals (like Nawruz) on the other hand are based upon the traditions of the Kuffar and celebrated on specific days (thus unlike the spoon which has a practical use as a tool), and furthermore and more importantly festivals were limited by the Prophet (SAW) in the following Hadith: Anas (RA) said: When the Messenger of Allah (SAW) came to Madi
  13. Some Sunni books and all Sunni Da'is (callers to faith) place great importance on explaining the core evidence and logic behind the truth of Islam and how other religions are false. If you have specific questions about Islam, or perhaps you want to know the Islamic refutations of Christian beliefs (as you are a Christian), these can be found quite easily online and in debate videos with Christians. There are not as many Shia resources on these topics however, as the Shia mainly focus on converting Sunni Muslims, though that does not necessarily mean there is nothing from them.
  14. You should say this to the brother who claimed it was a Shia holiday If you agree that it's not a Shia holiday, then it can be conclusively denounced as immitating the Kuffar and also an innovation
